When Kaiserman hosted the Tri-State Junior Maccabi Games, only athletes 11-12 were included. Then, several years ago, the Rockland JCC began the Mini-Maccabi Games for athletes ages 9-10.
After a decision to combine the 9-10 competition with the 11-12, the first Mid-Atlantic Junior Maccabi Games involving athletes 9-12 was a major success in Baltimore in 2018.
“We are glad to be carrying on a new tradition,” Krulik said. “The Junior Maccabi games are a great introduction to the Maccabi experience and a great feeder for our Maccabi program for high school students.”
Krulik and Games Director Sam Schuman are putting the finishing touches on the logistics involved with the event.
“Traffic, you name it,” said Krulik. “We want all our visitors — athletes and others — to enjoy their time with us.”
